About Elite Feet Dance Studio
EFDS is owned and directed by Gay Lynn Meadows. She started this studio in 2005, after teaching in several other studios in the area and previously in North Carolina, and Virginia, beginning in 1975. Her focus for each student is not just on dance but how hard work brings good results, in dance and preparing for any other part of life. Gay Lynn instills in her teachers to look at each student as a unique individual, and make each class a rewarding experience that makes the student want to come back for more.
Our Teaching Philosophy
At Elite Feet we strive to provide every student a positive, nurturing and challenging dance education experience. We recognize talent, but focus on teaching our students how commitment and hard work are the real keys to success. We offer a welcoming environment where every student is valued and teamwork and camaraderie are strongly encouraged. We use only age-appropriate costuming, music, and choreography. While only a few students will go on to pursue dance careers, we know all our students will leave with a skill they can enjoy all their lives. They also will have more self-confidence, better fitness and coordination, better memory and mental acuity – and many new friends.
A Professional Environment
We believe a quality dance education program begins with a highly professional instructional staff. Our dance instructors have college and/or professional experience in dance, musical theater and education/child development. We do not use older students as instructors at any level. Adult, professional teachers teach all classes. This studio is guided by the Director’s 40+ years of dance teaching experience. By keeping classes small and well planned, each student receives personalized attention to enable them to achieve their personal best. Parents are kept fully informed of their student’s progress through professional communication and a yearly evaluation. This helps us carefully place each student in a class where they can learn well and let their talent shine.
Elite Feet Dance Studio is conveniently located at 253 East 4th Street in downtown Frederick, MD. Our building was constructed over 100 years and is a Frederick historic landmark. The interior was completely renovated in 2005 and today houses three bright, clean, attractive studios equipped with mirrors, ballet barres, and sprung floors with Marley surface. The sprung floors reduce stress on joints and tendons, preventing injury and giving the dancers more comfort and confidence. Video monitors in the waiting area allow parents to observe classes without distracting the students. We strive to make our facility a warm, clean, safe, and fun environment for students of all ages.
We invite you to check out our staff resumes and our many programs serving students from ages 2-1/2 through adult.
